fall love

ok ... this is a couple weeks late :S
and now its snowing!
but here it is anyways ...

i LOVE fall!
it's sometimes hard to admit
because it means we are that much closer to a long cold winter
but i can't resist loving fall!
the colors
the smells
the crisp fresh in the air
fall food!
i'm gonna take this blog into full fall goodness!
new receipes that taste like fall!
some will be winners
some will be losers (i'm sure !)
thanksgiving seemed like the perfect kick off to this.
family, laughs, memories and food!
desserts ... i would say are more my forte
so i'm gonna start sharing with you
NEW fall recipes!
my 'rules' for myself are this:
1. i can't have made the dessert before (execpt this first post!)
2. i MUST document and
3. i'm going to try doing 1 new dessert a week
i may end up gaining some pounds (!)
caramel popcorn

1 cup air popped corn
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup butter
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
pop popcorn.  will make about 5 quarts
combine brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and salt in medium pot
bring to a boil -- boil for 5 minutes, without stirring
take off stove and stir in vanilla and baking soda
pour over popcorn and mix well
spread on cookie sheet and bake at 250 for 1 hour.
*i don't usually bake the popcorn, i find it stays softer without baking it.
